Banshee still uses the old gnome-screensaver dbus api to inhibit the screensaver. However this api has been removed with gnome 3. The bug has been reported upstream almost 4 month ago:

I fixed the bug with this patch:

it does only touch code, that was not working anyways, so it should be pretty safe to apply this patch to our current banshee pkg without waiting for a new upstream version. :)

Additional info:
extra/banshee 2.0.1-2
extra/gnome-session 3.0.2-1
extra/gnome-screensaver 3.0.0-1

Steps to reproduce:

  • Field changed: Category (Packages: Extra → Upstream Bugs)
I changed the category to "Upstream bug". I will leave the bug open. I don't want to apply a patch which isn't reviewed upstream.
